The Euphorbia in the very first photo is Euphorbia helioscopa, Sun Spurge.

In  the recent set of photos, the top one is Shepherd's Purse, Capsella bursa-pastoris. The middle one is a bitter-cress, you need to count the stamens to be sure which one you have. The bottom one is Creeping Buttercup, Ranunculus repens.

They are all weeds in the garden, spreading prolifically. Get rid!

GW live. What to expect?

Speaking personally, I've given up on GWL. It's dwindled from what it used to be, far fewer stalls of any gardening interest, and I've rarely seen  much to impress in the show gardens. Malvern autumn is very different, I always enjoy it, but again there are far fewer gardening things and more craft and tat.

I can see some Elder there, but to be honest I can't make out enough detail on the photos. I would take out the elder if it was my garden, but some people like it.

It would probably prefer a soil-based compost, if you can't plant it in the ground. Check to make sure it's not waterlogged, give it some liquid feed and cross your fingers!

Nick, you made me giggle - I love the idea of moaning at the weeds to get them down!

Angelica gigas is another huge umbellifer, stunning plant.

another mystery climber!

Yes, Tamus communis. It's a relative of the yam!

Comfrey is often used for this. I believe there is a special strain sold for this purpose. Nettles are good as well.

Can anyone identify this plant

The mole thing doesn't work, sorry to say.
